Right now if you look on Delta.com there is a link that says "Alert", which warns passengers that Northwest Airlines has a work stoppage. Delta says that it will do its best to accomodate pasengers when the need arises. I haven't really seen this feature used on their old site, so I think this is a pretty good way of keeping passengers informed. Has Delta done this before?

They may be talking about the code share flights they have with NW.

No JDWfloyd thats not true.

In the event that NW goes on a full strike, passengers need to get somewhere dont they? It's a message telling people that Delta is willing to assist passengers who's flights are cancelled by NW.

UA had a press release about the same topic. AA has a link to this topic as well. Industry standard practice. Only think is, NW is operating pretty good from what can be seen, weather can cause more interruptions than what we are seeing.

Don't be so quick to dismiss what Jdwfloyd wrote...

I'm not being so quick. I havent seen a DL flight with a NW codeshare flight number on it. I dont live in the land of the red tails or down south but i live where a certain airline has been in bankruptcy for almost 3 years.

Here's an example of a NW/KL codeshare but in AMS, i havent see a NW/DL/KL codeshare.

NW8657/KL657 operated by KLM
AMS-EWR

There are plenty. DL 1628 (M80) DTW-ATL carries NW 9228, whereas NW-operated (DC-9 ) 465 DTW-ATL carries DL 6662.

And there are many more. NW flights from the west coast to NRT are carying a DL flight number, just check for example schedules SLC-NRT on delta.com, they route you through LAX (KE or NW), SFO or SEA (NW).

There are no transatlantic NW/KL/DL-flights, as antitrust legalisation does not allow this.

You don't have to live in either market to know this. You obviously have access to the internet, therefore, you could have easily gone to the Delta website (www.delta.com) and read the alert and known for a fact that Delta was referencing both passengers inconvenienced by the NW strike and DL passengers who are flying on a Delta Code Share with Northwest Airlines...

Instead, you just popped off with an inane comment...

Again, whether you are from Chicago or Atlanta or Detroit is really not relevant...
